Product Details

Product Details

'Pink Giant' is a sturdy grower with bright pink blooms and white eyes; this variety dates to 1942.

These small bulbs are a great choice for naturalizing by the handfuls at the feet of deciduous shrubs, where the soil will not become too hot or dry during the summer. Chionodoxa is native to Turkey, Crete, and Cyprus and doesn't mind heat and sun in summer as long as the soil does not dry out.

For more information on planting Chionodoxa, click Growing Guide.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

A delightful surprise

Caryn from Albuquerque, NM

I planted a little cluster of these bulbs at the same time and area that I planted tulips. They stayed blooming for a very long time and really set the tulips off to look more beautiful than tulips look by themselves.
